Parts of the world will have weather patterns that switch between extremes of wet and dry, say scientists. A country like the United States will see more droughts, while flooding will become more common in the western Pacific, research suggests.
The study, in Nature Climate Change, adds to a growing body of evidence over climate change and extreme weather. The latest data – based on detailed climate modeling work – suggests extreme La Nina events in the Pacific Ocean will almost double with global warming, from one in 23 years to one in 13 years.
Lets us be reminded that the International panel on climate change-IPCC, assessments show that Africa will be worst hit by the impact of climate change!
